McLaren's Lewis Hamilton roared to his first win of the Formula One season in Turkey after his Red Bull rivals drove each other off the track and gifted McLaren a one-two finish.

Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel were dominating another race until they collided 18 laps from the finish when the young German tried to pass his team-mate on the inside.

Vettel didn't finish but Webber managed to finish third behind the McLaren pair, increasing his lead in the championship to five points over Jenson Button, with another four points back to Hamilton in third place.

Michael Schumacher finished fourth for Mercedes, but he took the chequered flag more than half a minute behind Hamilton.
